I'm surprised this hasn't been done already...

This contest is pretty simple: make a American patriotic superhero.

The character can have any power or appearance you see fit to give them, but they need to give off a sense of American pride visually.

Deadline is 11/14 @ midnight (eastern)

* No limit on number of entries per person, but as always the single submission with the most votes will win; no cumulative. So knock out as many as you'd like!

Some creative inspiration: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States-themed_superheroes

Best of luck everyone!

@shatterstar - Could you please pin this for me?

The problem with using these sorts of programs in these contests is you're competing against people actually making the art by hand either on paper or a tablet. Correct me if i'm wrong but it seems like this provides a template and you pick/choose what aspects to add to the character? It sort of seems like cheating when the other artists entering are having to come up with that template themselves out of their own creativity.

@shatterstar - No disrespect intended to the art or the artist entered in this contest. I read the description as "make" an American hero and that is what I did. It may be a template structured form of media I used to express my characters, but it was my creativity that shaped them into the pic you see. If you think it is simple cut and paste to make images with the Heromachine program, then by all means go to the site and recreate my character exactly as you see it if you can. If I had missed a rule that said this had to be a hand drawn pic, then I apologize and will withdraw my image. Peace!

Maiden America might be one of the best super hero names ever.
